Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 6-25-2012 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – Christians began to realize something was deeply wrong with a place in Rockford called Woman’s Space when it was learned one of the founders and now Executive Director Sister Elaine Hirschenberger, presided at the funeral service for , Kate Trainer, a longtime abortion advocate and employee of the notorious Rockford abortion mill. Over the years Woman’s Space has had numerous new age speakers and programs featuring radical feminism and paganism.
Woman’s Space also works closely with the Unitarian Church in Rockford–the same Unitarian Church that holds monthly meeting of the Winnebago County Citizens for Choice. This is an organization that was well known for blocking mothers from hearing about alternatives to abortion or receiving help outside of Rockford’s now disgraced and closed abortion mill.
Two events Woman’s Space is holding this summer are strange to say the least. One is called “Praying with images of the divine. The Woman’s Space website describes it as “mystical encounters with the divine feminine that will feed your soul” and how a woman became the great mother by combining ancient mythology, dreams, Catholicism, and Native American shamanism.
The second event is called “Fairy Festival” and is described as an evening of fairies and magic.
Just this past weekend in the Rockford Register Star, Woman’s Space Development Director Sister Dorothy Bock said rather contemptuously about the Catholic Church, “Some of the rules and regs are becoming rather narrow so I have to find my own religious freedom and use of my own conscience.”
It is painfully clear the “Sisters” who founded and run Woman’s Space in Rockford have found their own brand of religious freedom and follow their own self-formed conscience that seem to include paganism and radical feminism. Their consciences seem to have no problem in partnering with the radically pro-abortion Unitarian church in Rockford.
This would make Woman’s Space a very dangerous place for any person who believes in the Church or the gospel of Jesus Christ.
